Smile siruis/xm any dual subs here ?????????

i just recently purchased a xm radio, i enjoy coast to coast on xm,

having both services is a plus, i give siruis the slight edge on overall talk content but it is close.

peace tony

I subscribe to Sirius and get XM with my DirecTV subscription.

I think I prefer XM for music, but that's always a subjective thing.

I definitely prefer Sirius for sports and talk channels.

If I was forced to choose on over the other, I'd take Sirius.

I'm a dual subscriber. Here's why:

Stern on Sirius and Ron & Fez on XM.

I subscribe to both, mostly because XM came with my Acura that I recently purchased. I think it's mostly Hertz/Avis in comparison. XM I think has much better music options overall. Sirius is much better for sports. Having both is a nice luxury.

I originally got XM back in january for the nascar channel, but decided to go with sirius a couple months ago since nascar is coming here, plus I can listen to my chicago bear games. Now XM is in the wife's truck and sirius is in mine. My two favorite channels from XM are squizz and big tracks, while my favorite channels on sirius are octane and hair nation, but most of the time the nfl channel is on as far as the wife is concerned, all she does is surf the channels looking for something she wants to hear, she has no favorite channels, and it really is a pain to start listening to a song, then she sees another song she likes better and the channel changes midstream.

I have both, had XM for over 5 years and Sirius for 4.5- love both! Prefer XM adult urban/r&b channels over Sirius, but like Sirius Classic Rock offerings better than XM. The pop/decade channels are a toss up, with 60s on 6 XM being the best, and Totally 70s onn Sirius the top one. Something I like on both.....choices and variety!!

I got XM first, but switched to Sirius for Stern. Wife still has XM...she wavers between staying & switching, but she says she prefers the DJ-less format of music on XM. I prefer XM's comedy format.

I have Sirius in the car and use the online service for the home theater from the HTPC. I also get XM via DirecTV's satellites but I never listen to XM because I find the music to be poor compared to Sirius.

I have two subscriptions to each, a decal for each on my rear windshield, and XM t shirt and on the way a Sirius hat. I love both services equally. Some channels are better on one service then the other, but I love 'em both.

Sirius since 10/21/04
Sportster Replay at home
Starmate Replay in my SUV

XM since 8/12/03
SkyFi 2 at home
Roady XT in my SUV

I used to have both till September. I cancelled my Sirius sub and kept my 5 XM subs. I wasn't too happy with Sirius Country Music. XM wins in that typr of music. Since I mainly got satelite radio for music, there wan't much reason for me to keep Sirius. I may try it again sometime in the new year once the price on the Stilettos is cut way way back. I have two Innos and two MyFis so I don't need to pay alot of money for another portable. My other XM sub is in my Chevy, came with OEM XM.

I listen to R&F and O&A (no O&A don't talk about Stern everyday, they actually do a show) on XM 202, X Country, the Village and 60s, 70s, 80s, Fred, Boneyard and a few other channels.

I have XM with DirecTV and also had it in the car until recently. I replaced XM with Sirius. I like the music programming on SIRIUS better than XM.
